iPhone 8 Plus screen replacement
By far the most recurring problem that we resolve is a cracked iPhone 8 Plus screen. We all know the feeling as our precious phone slips out of our hands and hurtles towards the ground.

Is it possible to increase iPhone battery health?
iPhone batteries are affected by numerous factors. Firstly, the surrounding and actual device temperature can be too hot, which consequently decreases battery performance. Secondly, by the number of charging cycles the battery has gone through. Thirdly, fast charging or using an incorrect charger, such as one for an iPad, will also affect battery life.
Whilst battery life is difficult to increase, it can certainly be prolonged. Low power mode was introduced in iOS 9 and this setting will optimise iPhone 8 Plus performance. Low power mode can be enabled in settings > battery.
